** Not to mention at all the all-star cast that played the characters in the FMV portions of the games... did not appear at all in the series. Seriously, you had ''Mark Hamill'' in the lead role as one of the best pilots in the galaxy, just for a start!

* TheScrappy: Everybody seems to hate Maniac (both in real life and in-universe)... [[CreatorsPet Except for the writing staff]], since of all of the cast members who get KilledOffForReal, Maniac -- the most likely candidate given his rank, status, and reckless behavior -- isn't one of them.

* {{Squick}}: From ''Wing Commander IV'', the sight of one of the victims of the biological attack on Telamon. Even Blair and his comrades must look away upon seeing the aftermath of it.

* AntiClimaxBoss: Prince Thrakhath in the final stretch of ''Wing Commander III''; even though he is flying the Bloodfang, renowned for its unmatched lethality among the Kilrathi, he flies little faster than a Vaktoth and you likely won't need much time taking him out in your Excalibur.

* HarsherInHindsight: ''Wing Commander III'' opens on the burning, half-sunken wreck of the ''Concordia'', your flagship from the previous game which is then deemed a "total loss". Come 2012 the ''Costa Concordia'' disaster took place, with the ship similarly marooned and damaged beyond repair off the coast of Tuscany.

* SpiritualLicensee: To Universal's previous sci-fi cartoon, ''WesternAnimation/{{Exosquad}}''; indeed, USA Network aired reruns of that show the same time they were airing this one.

* TheyJustDidntCare: The actors seem to be attempting to care, and many other aspects seem polished, but misspelling common words (breach) and the names of main characters (Devereaux and Tolwyn) is unforgivable. They also mix up actors Tcheky Karyo and Jurgen Prochnow on the back of the DVD.

* ExecutiveMeddling: Ironically, a case where some executive meddling would have made the film ''better.'' [[WordOfGod Roberts]] later said that in hindsight, he wished he'd had an executive producer who could have told him the elements of the film that were distracting from the core story and needed to be removed, especially on the tight budget ($27 million, expanded to $30 million after Roberts kicked in an additional $3 million out-of-pocket).
